Disruption at Driving Test Centres’

Last updated  21/01/2016 at 12:44pm


All test centres are currently operating as normal.

Rathgar Driving Test Centre

The RSA would like to advise customers that the driving test centre at 75 Orwell Road, Rathgar, Dublin 6, has closed  with effect from 16th January 2016. The Office of Public Works who leased the centre on behalf of the Road Safety Authority had been given notice to quit due to the recent sale of the property.

Temporary alternative test centres have been established to operate from the Rochestown Lodge Hotel & Spa, Rochestown Avenue, Dun Laoghaire, and at Landscape House, Landscape Road, Churchtown, Dublin 14. We hope to be able to confirm the permanent location of the test centre for the South Dublin region during the coming weeks.

The RSA are urging customers who had a driving test application for Rathgar to contact us directly at drivingtest@rsa.ie  or on 1890 40 60 40 in order to change their test centre preference.

Other alternative test centres in the Dublin area are:

  • Tallaght Driving Test Centre, Premier Business Park, 52 Broomhill Road, Tallaght
  • Finglas Driving Test Centre, Jamestown Business Park, Jamestown Road, Finglas
  • Raheny Driving Test Centre, 4 All Saints Park, Raheny, Dublin 5.

The RSA apologises for any inconvenience caused
